Pour was dark golden with a thick and creamy off white head. Aroma was of fresh hops and some pale malt. Flavors were well blended making this a very easy to drink hoppy brew. I didn’t get an overwhelming amount of hops but just the right amount. Also no up front ups. Everything was again blended well. Would buy again.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 26, 2008
bottle from monger and the mystery swaps... clear coppery color with a medium sized whitish head. enticing juicy fruity aroma... grapefruit, orange, caramel, light pine, grass and some peppery spice. a bit on the sweeter side of my palate. citrus-y flavors and not bitter enough... caramel, grapefruit, orange zest, cinnamon/earthy spice and a mildly bitter finish. medium body. prickly high carbonation settles down and gets a bit creamy as it warms.

RSRIZZO (1931) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2008
(12 oz. Bottle courtesy of Headbanger) Aroma is a big fresh hop scent with a little pepper tone. Color is a deep golden with good carbonation and a nice head. Taste is citrusy and hoppy. Starting with a medium / light body that goes down smooth. Finish comes in with some malt then big citrus and hop flavor that is backed by a mild bitterness. After taste leaves you with a hop flavor and a little bitterness. A nice IPA but a little too citrus for me.

valpoaj (705) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JUL 25, 2008
Pours reddish copper with a decent off-white head that leaves considerable lacing. Aroma is robust...hoppy and is dominated by orange and other citrus accents...very pleasant! Hops hit up early on the palate and hang on...definitely some bitter orange accents come into play mid-drink, but there’s a nice mix of citrus and some piney hops throughout. Not a lot of malt accents to balance things, and it does turn pretty bitter and leaves a very bitter aftertaste. Slightly thin on the palate as well for what I was expecting. I would have liked a bit more sweetness in here to offset things, but it was a pretty good drink nevertheless.

heemer77 (5235) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 23, 2008
Thanks for the beer, iowaherkeye. Pours with a pretty dark amber to copper body. A light khaki head on top. The aroma has some rich notes of oranges and caramel. A nice floral character throughout. The taste has some bitter orange peels and burnt bread crust. A little too bitter and unbalanced for me.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 22, 2008
12oz bottle from tytoanderso - thanks, Santa! Copper pour with a vibrant, champagne-like carbonation rather than the fluffy head I was expecting. Sweet aroma reminded me of one of the old Push-Ups I used to get from the ice cream man. A bit of bitters in the taste, and a very slick mouthfeel, add up to a nice delivery system for this well hopped and sweetly satisfying IPA.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Fresh keg, just tapped. Cast in a bronze/amber hue, big, creamy white head. Mellow aromatics, floral, citric hops, very even and cool. On the tongue, here’s the first spank of hops, the citric/pine tickle, lingering on the palate, then slowly fading off. Bright orange flavor peeks in just a bit. Hops and orange flavor keep trickling in, but it’s never too much. Tastes a lot like Bitter Woman, but juicier, moister, ...lacks dryness, but that’s what makes it unique. Very tasty, very drinkable. Yum.

Scurvy has actually been one of my top health concerns ever since I changed my diet to consist of only beer, meat, and cheese. I was worried the orange would dominate this beer, however it’s well balanced, starts off subdued and then grows to a bitter finish. I’d been seeking this out for a while, and am glad I found it.

undsioux7 (870) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Pours deep amber with a nice sized tan head. Aroma of orange, citris and pine hops with a bit of caramel malt. Taste is the same with more of the orange coming throuh. Similar to old bitter woman with more citris and malt backbone. Good stuff maynard.

hopdog (10731) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2008
12oz bottle. Poured a medium amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of oranges, citrus, piney, and some fruitiness. Nice and hoppy. Tastes of orange peels, grapefruit, pine, and some caramel.
